    Do 10 week old chickens have the sense to come in out if the rain? It's pouring here, their coop door is open, and they are out running around in the rain. Can they catch cold doing this?

    My adult birds don't have sense enough to go in out of the rain. They have been out all day in it. Crazy chickens![​IMG]
